Finally. What a great result near the end of a great season. And what a great way to bounce back from losing in the 2nd round of USO and 1st round of Beijing.

Hopefully this will be the 1st of many to come, like a Premier tournament or even a Grand Slam.

Still, happy that she finally won a singles title, Dominika should follow suit next year.

By my count, it's the first WTA title in singles won by an Australian since Alicia Molik won in Sydney in January 2005. Sam was the losing finalist on that occasion.
